This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: July to October
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Forming a spreading mound of lanky stems, which for several months from midsummer, are topped with conical clusters of lavender-coloured flowers, this deciduous shrub is compact and free-flowering. Beloved by butterflies, the flowers mix easily with most shades of pink as well as stronger purples and silver-blues.

  • Garden care: Prune back hard in March, removing all of the previous year's growth to three or four buds.
